A true story that is both uniquely moving and exceptionally inspiring, Emergence is the first-hand account of a courageous autistic woman who beat the odds and cured herself. As a child, Temple Grandin was forced to leave her "normal" school and enroll in a school for autistic children. This searingly honest account captures the isolation and fears suffered by autistics and their families and the quiet strength of one woman who insisted on a miracle.


Offers psychiatrists and pediatricians a theory-based and empirically driven model that is straightforward to apply, simple to explain to families, and the outcomes of which are measurable for the increasing demands of health care organizations. Explains the general features of the model, initiating therapy, the therapeutic components of intervention with both children and parents, and joint parent-child sessions. Includes many case studies.
